Re: RIP Thomas, Prince among cats.

I'm so sorry about Thomas & I'm having a few tears - for Thomas, Dora, The Cat & Mayday. I still have waves of grief. Life is so fragile & our furry babes give us so much . My thoughts are with you. I'm still lighting a candle every night. Hugs to you & yours. Vivian

Re: Milla had her kittens

That's gear news. I too don't have great sight! Can't see clearly 6ft! Have worn specs since I was 6! The eye specialist explained to me "my pupils aren't soccer balls - rugby balls & laser not a good idea! Dealt a bad deal in the gene pool there!" But appear to have scored the best gene pool for ki...

Re: HAPPY CHRISTMAS!

HimBarry thanks for your post. I really missed my Mayday this Xmas. First one in 21 yrs I didn't get up & wish the first love in my life "merry Xmas Darling Girl I love you so much!" And she'd purr & purr. It was tough. Vivian

Re: Thoughts on missing cats at Christmas ....

Hi Desley I'm sure that kitty from a domestic violence situation would treasure a loving home. I recruit for child protection officers & pets are often the last thought of in such situations. And unfortunately they can't tell us the trauma they've experienced - only their interactions give us a glim...

Thanks Mary. I've tried to load up avatars from my iPad but too large so I'll try thru my computer over the weekend. Did my photo of Mayday upload. She was such a sweetie! I hope to visit Deb @ Little Paws Kitten Rescue over weekend to spend time with her & her fur babies - kittens & older cats too.
